Jared Leto’s Morbius Is On The Move (Again)
Last year, we watched as movie after movie was shifted back in the schedules by studios, all victims of pandemic scheduling as cinemas closed. We were keeping everything crossed that 2021 would be different, but with the world still firmly in the grasp of the crisis, some films are shifting yet again. The latest? Morbius, Sony's Spider-Man adjacent project starring Jared Leto.
Originally pencilled in for 19 March, the film features Leto as Michael Morbius, on a biochemist who becomes a vampire after attempting to cure himself of a rare blood disease. With Daniel Espinosa in the director's chair, the cast also includes Matt Smith, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson.
The Sony movie will now land on 8 October, which puts it after the planned launch of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, though that could also change.
Sony still has a new take on Cinderella still on the calendar next month, but with cinemas still closed and lockdowns in place in major markets such as here in the UK and in the States, we'd be shocked if that sticks.
